Description

Vallet Frres Gevrey-Chambertin This winery represents everything that we are proud to be associated with; attention to detail, delicate selection of the best grapes and above all a passion for making superb wines. The Vallet family own holdings in Gevrey-Chambertin - the entire single vineyard of Clos de la Justice - Beaune Epenottes (Premier Cru) and Charmes-Chambertin (Grand Cru). They also source the best grapes from growers in other areas, with whom they have worked closely for many years. The Burgundies they produce are complex, fine and taste of the old-fashioned, 'real' Pinot Noir that their provenance would suggest. Their enthusiasm and passion for producing quality wines is inspiring. Louis Vallet, father of present managing director explains: "the most important element of greatness is 'origine'; is the wine complete? Is it harmonious? Is it fully itself? Does it have finesse?" 3 Michelin star chef Gordon Ramsay is a big fan and has sourced 5 Vallet wines for his restaurants wine list. The Vallet family (also known as Bouree Pere et Fils) is a grower and negotiant who owns holdings in Gevrey-Chambertin - the entire single vineyard of Clos de la Justice - Beaune Epenottes ('Premier Cru') and Charmes-Chambertin ('Grand Cru'). They also source the best grapes from growers in other areas, with whom they have worked closely for many years. Their Burgundies are complex, fine and taste of old-fashioned, 'real' Chardonnay and develop charmingly in bottle. As Louis Vallet, father of present managing director and winemakers Bernard and Jean-Christophe, explains: "flashy flavours and aromas are not what great wine is about. I can put some fruit juice in water and you'll have an exciting bouquet. No, the most important element of greatness is 'origine'; is the wine complete? Is it harmonious? Is it fully itself? Does it have finesse? I tell this to my colleagues in Bourgogne and, sad to say, many don't know what I mean"
